Need help to maximize a new window!!
I have several hyperlinks that are set to open the new page in a new window. It currently opens up about 1/2 size, but I'd like it to open maximized. Is this possible? I'm using Front Page.

Macromedia Flash
Here's the problem - Macromedia Flash shows player and controls,  but dosn't show any content. (this is for the viewing of a foran site.) I think the problem lays in the "Embed" Tag used on some sites, since the problem only happens on afew sites seen. Any ideas to the cause and a fix for it ?  (this has me stumped and many other techs.)

Yeah, it probably was a bit high even for back in 2000. We ended up cancelling the project because it was cost prohibitive.

One last note: drop the dashed line at the end of the CSS, that may also cause your browser to flip out.

Need help creating a voting poll on website.
I have to create a "Voting" poll on the front page of my homepage. Also want to create something that will store the votes that are selected. Maybe even store what question i was asking and the number of votes for the answers associated with that question. I do not have very much experience with html/php/etc. I have seen alot of websites that you can make a voting poll and put their code in your website but in some way it links their website to your website and i dont like that, so i was wondering if anyone could possibly lead me in the right direction of making my own. I use Dreamweave for my html editing needs...  Any help is appreciated, thanks! -David

Hi David, Yes, I don't like the ones that use another website either. So that means you need to install one of the ones that runs on your website to a DB on your website. PHP and MySQL are very common so I put a link to the following page that lists out a bunch of em: http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Polls_and_Voting/more9.html

Make sure you keep all sensitive data as secure as it needs to be and if you're creating your own ecommerce software and not implementing an already built solution (shameless product plug: Prestwood Software's ASPSuite product has a fully built and customizable eStore module) be sure to keep a potential customer in mind and make the experience as easy as possible.

images in Microsoft FrontPage 2000
Laying out single-page HTML notices with FrontPage 2000. These E-notifications are intended to be sent by e-mail. Most images come through OK, however, when I place an image or animation in a table as a background for that table (i.e. to overlay type or images within the table) the background image does not show up when e-mailed to others. Mine looks fine. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

No problem, glad my input helped out. It sounds like you're past it now. , , For others and completeness up here, to correctly embed an image in Frontpage and email it, just make sure the graphic is on the web some place and use a fully qualified URL.

Shopping Carts
Hi All,, , I use FrontPage for building my websites and am currently trying to solve the dilemma of what shopping cart to use for e-commerce. My host supplies cart32 v3.5, but in my tests some kind of scary things happened, like order number 2 overwrote information in order number1. I am debating whether to write my own, or use the basics of someone else's. I see many advantages in this process since we are in the process of selling our services in the web design area. My dilemma is what one should choose to write in these days and I am hoping this will generate some spirited debate. , , One can choose Cold Fusion, cgi(perl), java, etc. I am looking for Windows-based solutions and want to be able to use PayPal to take payments. , , I am looking forward to the feedback to come., , Karen

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that you can actually download a little front pagbe plug in to help build your items. It does a great deal of the product building for you, then you can just tweak the html code or whatever you wanted. Its called Commerce Monkey

DirectNIC
When I did register with DirectNIC, I thought I had a good deal - 15 bucks for a year of domain name... but then I realized that it's a hassle. I can't seem to get prestwood's hosting plan to work nicely with it. For example, I can see my web site there... but if I send any email to anything@gizzar.com (my registered name is gizzar.com), it bounces back and says the domain isn't recognized or something...

How can one link to a specific page within a frame
When one opens a frames page, each frame then opens on it's default page. And I can navigate to open different pages within the frames. , , Now, I can either link to the frames page opening each frame on it's respective default page, or I can link to whatever page of content that I have located. But not to open within the frame set. , , So, HOW do I create a link that opens the right page WITHIN the intended frame set? My Internet Explorer Favorites do open the desired specific pages within their framesets, exactly as they appeared when I clicked "Add To Favorites". , , But I have thus far failed to incorporate a favorite as a link in a webpage of my own making.

Take a look at the target attribute of the hlink command. With the target command you can specifiy which target frame you wish the page to open in.

The search box is just a search box. Each tool calls it something different. As for learning how to create great web sites, you learn by doing. So dive in and start creating the best web site you can. Read alot. Visit alot of sites and figure out how to duplicate the features you like.

It is [b]NOT[/b] recommended to run executables from a web page due to the potential security risk., , However, there are several ways you could do this. Here are a couple:, , 1. Create and ISAPI script or CGI script which executes a program given parameters passed., , 2. Create a COM object which executes an program and use it in an ASP page.

Phil, I apologise for the tardy reply. I've viewed your site in both IE7 and FireFox 2.0.0.4.  It looks like you've solved the problems. Your site looks great (and the same), in either browser. Nice work.
